Free will is one of those "hard" philosophical problems. We have the intuition that we choose freely. But on closer consideration, I say that this is an persistent illusion.

A debate topic the likes of which DART has never seen before. Though I can't guarantee it'll be any good.

Logic is absolute all over the world and morality is considered to be it's antithesis, but I argue that they originate from the same point and end at the same point.

The purpose of the cosmological argument is to demonstrate that God exists. I will argue it fails to do this.

The burden of proof is on Atheists to prove that meaning and morality can exist in a universe with complete annihilation, no God, no gods, no afterlife, no reincarnation or nothing transcendent whatsoever except for math or what have you. I will be arguing for Theism of all sorts, and why any sort of Theism makes more sense then Atheism in regards to consciousness and it's well being.

Idealism and anti-idealism are two philosophical theories that center around the nature of reality and the relationship between the mind and the world. Idealists argue that reality is essentially mental or spiritual in nature, whereas anti-idealists deny this and assert that reality is fundamentally material. The debate has far-reaching implications for various fields, from metaphysics and epistemology to ethics and politics.

Being willing to do good without an expressed expectation of reciprocal energy or resources, in my view, only works if there's a tacit agreement that the other party/parties will be harmed if you are.

I'm hoping to find someone to engage in debate with on this topic, and hopefully exchange new ideas and give interesting arguments. Just for clarity: veganism is a moral philosophy and lifestyle that seeks to exclude, as far as practicable and possible. all forms of animal exploitation, for food, clothing, and any other purpose. and therefore , holds the moral stance that the unnecessary killing of animals is morally wrong.

Is the Holy Spirit of God's supernatural revelation, whereby a man may know and understand the veracity of His word in the Holy Scriptures (66 books of the Bible), sufficiently valid as a scientific means of substantiating the truth of God's word in the Holy Scriptures?

The ethics of genetic engineering is a debate topic that focuses on the moral considerations of using technology to modify the genetic makeup of living organisms. This can include treating genetic disorders, creating genetically modified crops, or potentially creating new species. The debate often centers on questions of safety, fairness, and potential consequences. Supporters argue for potential benefits, while opponents raise ethical concerns.
